A sense of humor and a sense of perspective are both helpful when pondering the recent interviews given by Pope Francis.
In the recent film, Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, Oscar winning director Alex Gibney promises to show his audience "an exposé of abuse of power in the Catholic Church, and coverups that lead to the highest office of the Vatican." But the story told about "the Vatican" and Fr. Murphy in the documentary is turned on its head by the evidence they produce and the evidence they neglect.
Is there a network of homosexual clerics working within the Vatican? Undoubtedly, Yes. Was the discovery of that network a major factor motivating Pope Benedict to resign? Undoubtedly, No.
